Online Orientation for Veterans & Military Students
Gwinnett Technical College
Veteran students onboarding technology shows veterans how to maximize educational benefits. Gwinnett Technical College was the first technical college in Georgia to provide dedicated enrollment services for all qualified veterans, their spouses, and dependents. The college ranks nationally in Military Times® and Military Friendly®.
Travis Simpson, M.Ed., Office of Veterans Affairs Coordinator at Gwinnett Tech and the college’s VA Certifying Official, understands the veteran experience. He recognized onboarding technology as a solution to ease the tough transition from military life to student life. The biggest challenge is guiding veterans through the “make or break” process of securing all the educational benefits they’ve earned.

What is the future of Veteran Online Orientation?
With Advantage Orientation, we have everything we need to meet veteran students where they are and to provide them the flexibility they need. This is the wheel. I wouldn’t recreate it.
